Return to World Ark Blog Landing

This week on the Heifer Blog we discussed young supporters, how kids can change the world and showed you a sneak preview of the World Ark arriving in mailboxes now.

Our young supporter Ian is currently on the climb up Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise awareness and funds for Heifer's mission. At 13 he's already raised over $1k to donate to Heifer to help lift families in need out of hunger and poverty. Check out our Q&A with him on why he decided to choose Heifer and how he's trained for this journey.

We know that a kid can change the world, but do you know what type of kid we are talking about? We mean baby goats, also known as a 'kid.' Goats are gentle enough for even small children to feed and play with. Children get a fuzzy buddy to snuggle with, and learn some responsibility at the same time. Check out how our Kid 2 Kid program can invest in 'kids' who can really change the world.

Has the recent edition of World Ark hit your mail box yet? From the latest in alpaca fashion, to where food comes from, you will learn a lot of Heifer's work in Peru to some fun facts. For instance, learn how much water it takes for a chicken to produce eggs.
